A Case for Office Property – Making sense of your optionsFebruary 21, 2017
Are you a small business who doesn’t require full-time office rental but you still want to take your business to its next stage of growth? A Virtual Office solution could be the answer!
Virtual Office services typically offer the following benefits:
- a registered address in your chosen location
- mail forwarding
- telephone answering system and local telephone number
- call screening and message-taking
- access to meeting rooms at your registered address
To start with, having a Registered Office address is a legal requirement for all companies ‘incorporated’ in the UK. It can be used for Company’s House registration and Google My Business, for example. If you work from home, it’s a safer option as it means you don’t need to worry about using your home address on company literature.
Opting for an alternative address - perhaps even a more prestigious one - can also give you a competitive advantage by enhancing your company’s brand image as it helps you appear more professional and established. It also benefits local Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) due to Google’s heavy weighting on business NAP (Name, Address, Phone no - this is how Google and other search engines categorise your local business information across the Internet).
Virtual Office services such as mail forwarding conveniently save you the time and hassle associated with admin, freeing you up to focus on tasks that can actually help grow your business.
Another advantage is that you have access to a skilled customer service workforce with the obvious potential benefits of improved customer care and retention without the expense of having to employ extra staff. Professional telephone services such as ‘Halcyon Connect’ offer a bespoke phone answering service, saving you time.
Most providers offer bolt-ons, such as access to meeting rooms to provide a professional space for client meetings. At the same time, you benefit from the flexibility of remote working in-between, with the work-life balance you deserve.
Halcyon tailors packages to suit whatever stage of business you’re at. It also provides Serviced Offices, in Leatherhead, Surrey (and other locations) offering a seamless transition into your next stage of company growth, so there’s no need to change your business address and you benefit from established working relationships with receptionists and other workers.
